Yoko Ono: “Avant-garde” Artist & Musician

Y E S Statement made in “Ceiling Painting” an avant-garde artwork presented at the Indica Gallery, in which people had to climb a white ladder and use a magnifying glass to see what was printed on a tiny message on the ceiling : “Y E S”. (November 1966) It was during this exhibition that John Lennon first became familiar with her work.

“Don’t ever give up on life. Life can be so beautiful, especially after you’ve spent a lot of time with it”.  Yoko

“I learned everything from her. … It is a teacher-pupil relationship. That’s what people don’t understand. She’s the teacher and I’m the pupil. I’m the famous one, the one who’s supposed to know everything, but she’s my teacher. She’s taught me everything I fucking know”. John Lennon

“The opposite of love is fear, not hate”. Yoko
